Handmade of maple by Ohio craftsman John Higgins, these beautiful hooks are a pleasure to work with and are great for crocheting rugs, scarves, garments and pillows. Each hook is packaged in a gift box and includes a satin drawstring pouch to protect the hook. These 9-inch hooks are the perfect tool to use with Bag Smith’s Big Stitch Alpaca Yarn.
"These wooden needles are handmade from the largest thorns of the May-tree also known as 'Crataegus'. This tree/large shrub is know for their long dangerous thorns. ... The thorns are selectively handpicked (so the tree lives on) and made into needles by hand. After making and carving the needle, the wood is protected with a little natural beeswax." she also makes knitting needles from pruning wood & crochet hooks from found twigs. very interesting!
